Racial Non-Discriminatory Policy

St. John School, mindful of its mission to be witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students of any race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded to or made available to students at this school. St. John School does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin, age, gender, or disability in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Philosophy of Spirituality

We are a community of faith that nourishes each child’s spiritual, academic, physical, social, and emotional growth. The school instills the Ursuline tradition of charity and spirit into every student. Non-Catholic students are welcome and their beliefs are respected. All students are encouraged to share their thoughts throughout the curriculum and are welcomed to participate in religious ceremonies as their comfort level allows.

St. John the Evangelist Parish is located in the neighborhood close to the school at 19 St. Mary’s Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94112. To learn more about the Parish and Parish activities, please visit

Accreditation: Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Accreditation

St. John Catholic School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WCEA accredits Catholic elementary and secondary schools in nine western states (26 (arch) dioceses) and the US Territory of Guam. WCEA co-accredits and is in partnership with three Regional agencies (WASC, NAAS, NCA) and two private agencies (CAIS and HAIS). WCEA began in 1957 in San Francisco and has a long and successful history of assisting school improvement through the accreditation process.

St. John has been awarded the highest-available (6-year) accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WASC accreditation is a dual-purpose process: schools must be worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high-quality learning opportunities and clearly demonstrate continual self-improvement.
